    I was relieved when I saw the hot dog after you took a bite. It really did looked burned! I’m surprised they don’t have this item at the Fair or something (omg, did I just come up with the next chicken charlies item). I’ve always wanted to try El Tigre. Were they also just that cart somewhere in nowhere that sold churros?

      I totally thought the hot dog was burned, too, but thankfully it wasn’t! I also thought this should be something that’s at the fair! I like that they swirl the churro batter around the dog though, it looks much more dramatic. The owner, Louie, used to own a market near 25th and Imperial that had the Churros el Tigre cart outside. But the market closed. I have seen the cart at the Spring Valley swap meet in addition to this permanent booth at the outlet mall. I believe they have two booths at the outlet mall now – one does all drinks and the other does the food.

    Wow! That is a cool new food you found! Wish the drive wasn’t so long though…

  3. I don’t know if I’d like this, only because the churro itself is so sweet. But hey, I would try it at least once. 🙂

      Hi CC – The one we tried didn’t have very much sugar/cinnamon on it so the outer part wasn’t overly sweet (which I liked). Always worth a try, I say!
